IUI may be appropriate in treating couples with unexplained infertility.
In an Intrauterine Insemination cycle, a sample of sperm is prepared by the embryologist and placed directly inside the uterus using a very fine catheter. The sperm is deposited before the release of an egg or eggs in a natural or stimulated cycle. Conception occurs naturally inside the body.
The cycle can be monitored at The Surrey Park Clinic and the sperm preparation and IUI is performed at Kings College Hospital.
